RIDGELAND, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Police say a man is facing charges after he fired shots at a man and chased him into Ridgeland after a run-in at a Jackson hardware store.

According to Ridgeland police, Justin Fowler saw a man he knew at the Home Depot on the Interstate 55 Frontage Road and wasn't happy with the exchange he had with the man. The men left the store, and Fowler reportedly followed the victim in his truck. 

Police say Fowler fired at least two shots with a rifle at the victim, who was driving a van, near Briarwood Road in Jackson.

Fowler reportedly continued to follow the victim into Ridgeland where Ridgeland police intervened. The chased ended in the parking lot of a shopping center on Old Canton Road between Lake Harbour Drive and Rice Road.

Ridgeland police say they found four rifles, a handgun and drug paraphernalia in Fowler's vehicle.  Ridgeland police officers arrested and charged Fowler with DUI, driving with a suspended license and possession of paraphernalia.

The victim said he was satisfied with the charges.

Fowler isn't facing charges in Jackson at this time.
